Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Oxford is issuing a call to cyclists and non-cyclists alike to join in their annual Ride Don’t Hide, a movement that’s gearing up and gathering momentum across the country, from coast-to-coast.
On June 25, 2017, Canadians from all walks of life will join the sixth annual Ride Don’t Hide community bike ride in celebration and support of mental health. CMHA is expecting more than 10,000 cyclists to ride for mental health in 35 communities across Canada, including 300 riders in Woodstock and Oxford County.
“Ride Don’t Hide is an opportunity to come together to fundraise as a community and say mental health is important to me, and it’s time to banish the stigma often associated with it,” says Mike McMahon, Executive Director of CMHA Oxford. “We are so thankful for the support from the community, and those who have shared their personal stories of why mental health is important to them.”
The Ride Don’t Hide movement began with Michael Schratter, a Vancouver school teacher living with bipolar disorder, who spent almost a year and a half cycling 40,000 km around the globe. Armed with only his bike, a knapsack and the determination to realize his dream of raising awareness and empowering those who experience mental illness, his story inspired millions of people and raised $100,000 for CMHA.
Now, the sixth annual Ride Don’t Hide community bike ride continues to inspire and aims to raise a record $1.5 million across Canada. The goal is to raise $45,000 in Woodstock to support Community Funded initiatives like Walk-In Counselling, because the funds stay right here in Oxford County.
Ride Don’t Hide is open to cyclists of all ages and skill levels. Registration is $35 for youth and adults, and free for children 12 and under. The family-friendly event in Woodstock features four routes (8K, 13K, 50K, and 100K); free breakfast, lunch, and event t-shirt for all riders; and free kids activities.
Individuals, families and teams can register online at www.ridedonthide.com.
